Texas power plant only facility in US with carbon capture/storage

Houston - Few people may know this, but the Petra Nova facility, a coal-fired power plant located near Houston, Texas, is one of only two coal-fired power plants with carbon capture and storage (CCS) in the world, and the only such facility in the United States.

Carbon capture and storage — A dream that may be unachievable

When two European utilities pulled out of the Rotterdam Warehousing and Capture Demonstration Project (ROAD) on June 27, many proponents thought the carbon capture and storage (CCS) dream was dead in Europe.

China begins first of eight large-scale carbon capture projects

Beijing - China has definitely taken the lead globally in its effort to mitigate the effects of climate change, just recently beginning construction of the first of eight large-scale carbon capture and storage projects.

Capturing Carbon Dioxide — Could sea urchins provide the answer?

Newcastle-on-tyne - A natural process involving carbon capture has been discovered by accident by researchers at Newcastle University in the UK. Researchers found that sea urchins could process carbon dioxide from the oceans to grow their exoskeletons.
